Organic Fabrics


Posted on January 20th, by Amy in Inspiration. 19 comments

Have you used organic fabrics?

I’ve not yet, but I’m planning a project with this fabulous bundle of Nature Walk:

Michelle at Cloud 9 Fabrics graciously sent them to me last week, and I’m loving the soft hand and beautiful prints.

If you would like to better understand what makes these fabrics organic, and why you might want to use them, I found the FAQ page at Cloud 9 Fabrics super informative.

Now to dream up the perfect project!

What are you up to today?

    I have been wanting to try the organic fabrics, especially some of these cool prints from Cloud 9, but they are quite expensive compared to quilting cotton. Not sure if I can afford them since I’m a student again. Speaking of which, I have a big sketch due for class tonight, so I will be working on that today.

    I am working on my charity quilts, I have the tops and I have some quilts that were started but did not finish. Some of the fabrics are vintage. Organize fabric (I am sure it is expensive but I would like to see and feel it).

    I haven’t used organics yet. I do love the prints you have there. Today I’m probably going to be working on my postage stamp quilt for the P.S. I Quilt Quilt along.

    I have used organic fabric by “Harmony Art” and love it! I think you can really tell the difference in just the feel, look, and drape of the fabric. I love Cloud 9 for their colors and patterns are so modern. Have fun with them!

    Today is a snow day here. Kids at home and hopefully I will get to resume my position in front of the sewing machine to meet my goal from your challenge.

    I used organic fabric at my daughter’s request on the back of a baby quilt. I could have made three more quilts for what it cost but she is happy and the baby loves the quilt.

    Those are beautiful! I don’t notice a large difference in the fabric while I’m piecing, but after it’s all together and washed, I think the organic fabrics are softer. They continue to get softer with each washing too.
